What is Athletic Training?

Athletic training is an allied health profession, which deals with the care of the physically active. Athletic trainers are specifically educated in the prevention of athletic injuries and the recognition, evaluation, and assessment of athletic injuries. Athletic trainers provide immediate care to injuries as well as provide appropriate treatment and rehabilitation to those injuries if the need arises. At New Prairie High School, the athletic training staff’s mission is to provide the best possible care to the student-athletes at NPHS. 

About the NPHS Athletic Training Room:

The athletic training room is located on the East side of the school, facing the athletic fields. The athletic training room is furnished with treatment tables, taping tables, whirlpool, and a variety of rehabilitation equipment.
